The project is articulated as a pilot test for the implementation of a network of railway innovation antennas in Spain
The president of Renfe, Isaiah Tables, the mayor of Mataró, David Bote and the general manager of TecnoCampus, Josep Lluís Checa, have signed a collaboration agreement to launch the TrenLab antenna in Catalonia, which will be located in the facilities of the TecnoCampus in Mataró. The Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Rachel Sanchez, presented the project today.
Renfe, Mataró City Council and TecnoCampus are collaborating in this initiative to develop railway innovation solutions and projects together with members of the innovative ecosystem (startups), within the TecnoCampus facilities, to take advantage and enhance business, teaching and methodological resources, in order to establish the first node of the TrenLab Antenna network. The space where the activity will take place will be enabled throughout 2022 in a room of 400m2 located in one of the buildings of the technology park.
The project is articulated as one pilot test that will allow Renfe the possibility of developing a long-term strategy to be implemented throughout the territory, through a network of antennas specialized in solutions and technology applied to the sector. The specific location in the technology park of Mataró, added to the close railway link of the city, turns this initiative into an opportunity of collaboration to develop new projects of impulse for the innovation.
The establishment of theTrenLab antenna within the TecnoCampus surroundingss will allow Renfe to create an open innovation ecosystem focused on entrepreneurship in technologies applied to mobility, transporte and logistics. The activities that will be developed will be:
